Awesome graphical shot, I must say. For the reason I cannot agree more with the position this was taken in; it leads me to the conclusion, that the photographer (you) intended to tell the story of a type of special event for a woman, such as a wedding, or a ball, that had been completely brought to ruins by a natural disaster of some sort. By the looks of the background it appears that it was a flood. If so, judging by the current emotions of the woman, which are sad, yet not an immediate breakdown; it tells me that this happened about a week or so ago, and she has come to the scene dressed formally to honor the day that her event was suppose to take place. I can say that the lack of another significant figure, such as a groom symbolizes that the event was something other than a wedding, or that the significant person was lost in the disaster.

As far as the quality goes, I can give almost absolute credit for the resolution of the photo with the exception of a very slight blur among the molding part of the wall on the left side. The lighting is almost perfect; the way it is directed makes it look like the building is torn open on the right side with the left side still enclosed. I really cannot say that there is anything wrong with the subject, other than the lack of a slight soil on the dress, but it still tells the story that she just made her appearance.

Thank you! That's a good analysis of the shot. I'm impressed!

Not a problem, there are some photographs that I cannot help but find stories to.

indeed, it is a huge contrast here. The bride is so beautiful, so perfect so wonderful, but behind and around her everything is dead, everything perished.

I like the contrast. But i think the girl should look more depressed or sad.

I really like the concept of the photo and the styling of the model. The composition is strong and the color pallet lovely, I just find the model (in both this one and the other picture from this shoot) a little uninspiring.
ScorpionEntity's avatar
And why do you say that?
ivyrose's avatar
I think that I would have liked to see more emotion portrayed in the face, but the body shapes and hair are very nice.
